What Marine Corps subjects would you like to see covered?

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen,

 

  While I have a relatively long list of subjects I either want to cover, or have already drawn decal art for, I'd love to hear what aircraft you'd like to see covered. In addition to aircraft, provide suggestions on squadrons and/or specific aircraft. 

 

  Of the three 1/32 sheets I've released to date, two sold out pretty quickly and the third moved enough to recoup the print costs (which I consider a successful sheet). The fourth and fifth sheets (F/A-18D's and AV-8B II Plus respectively) are shaping out to be good movers as well based on the pre-order numbers. 

 

On my short list are sheets covering the RF-4B, F-8C/D/K/E, A-1 variants, A-6E Intruders and more AV-8B Harriers. Let me know what you'd like to see and we'll go from there.

Second the RF-4B plus F-4B/J/N/S

 

VMFA-232 and 333 not much out there except the old Fox-One sheets and CAM.

To second that, Swede Vejtasa flew an F4U-1 aboard Enterprise in early 1943 off of the Solomons,  the first the Big E's crew had ever seen. There are photos on the interwebs. That would be a really neat decal set, a bent wing bird flown by an ace aboard the greatest carrier in history. It had to have been a Marine Corps bird on loan as they were the only ones with the plane in theater at the time.

Not really VF-10, as far as I can tell. I could be wrong, but as VF-10 flew F4Fs this is likely a bird temporarily "stolen" from the Marines. The side numbers might support that.

Poor quality video, but interesting.

 

 I posted about it in this link back in the day, but the originating link with the putative VMF-213 ID seems to have vanished. Crud.

Nice side view in the Big E's hangar.

 

 

Thank you for listening!
